Hawaii's Farmers & Chefs Events at Foodland!
It's that time of year again and we're partnering with local Farmers and Hawaii's Top Chefs for cooking demonstrations at select Foodland locations in support of the 4th annual Hawaii Food & Wine Festival. This Saturday, Chef Keoni Chang kicks off the first of four Hawaii's Farmers & Chefs events at 11 am at Foodland Farms Aina Haina. Chef Chang will be preparing and sampling a Crispy Fried Chicken with Kukui Romesco and Hawaiian Crown Pineapple Relish.
Craig Bowden, President of Hawaii Pineapple Company - which produces Hawaiian Crown Sweet Gold Pineapples & Hawaiian Crown Apple Bananas - will be there as well with great info about his delicious Kunia grown produce.
These unique meet and greet events are a great way to ask the farmers and chefs about cooking and preparation tips, so be prepared to taste some great food made with locally sourced ingredients, and feel free to talk story with all of our talented participants!
The following Saturday (August 9, 11 am), we're excited to have our good friend, Chef Roy Yamaguchi, of the world renown Roy's Restaurants. Chef Roy is also the co-event chair of the 2014 Hawaii Food & Wine Festival, and Foodland is thrilled to be a sponsor of this premier epicurean destination event in the Pacific. We invite you to learn more and purchase tickets directly at: HawaiiFoodandWineFestival.com, as tickets often sell out very quickly!
Chef Roy will be demonstrating a wonderful dish featuring Dean Okimoto's 'Nalo Farms greens. More details are coming soon, as well as links to the recipes...so stay tuned and please visit us at Foodland Farms Aina Haina this Saturday!
